*Retrace Your Walk With God*

Then Pharaoh called Moses and said, “Go! Worship the LORD! Only your flocks and herds need to stay behind. Even your children can go with you.” [Exodus 10:24 CEB]

Pharaoh has been negotiating with Moses throughout the devastating 9 plagues even when told that, death was coming upon all the first born of Egypt including animals, why? You might say, because God hardened his heart? Or perhaps he was not obedient to God or he had pride to let the people of Israel go? Or perhaps, the Egyptians had so many gods and Pharaoh did not know the God of Israel? Satan was with God and knew God yet, he chose not to be part of God’s will right? Satan will keep negotiating with believers right until the last day, when he will be totally destroyed; so he can take many with him to eternal hell fire [read Matthew 25:41]. Do you want to be in the kingdom of satan and his demons?

Brothers and sisters, this is spiritual warfare by the enemy invisible to us. Our enemy satan has not changed his mission:- to stop us from worshiping our God the way HE wants us to. Perhaps, we sleep too much! There are specific demons that make you sleep; called ‘spirit of slumber’ referred to in both the new and old testament. Have you considered, we can sit up and spend all our time on social media, watching pornography*, immoral television programs or go out partying till 2am; but if you decide to read your Bible, you go to sleep within 15 minutes? That’s not natural; there are ‘invisible dark forces’ which doesn’t mind you doing all these sinful activities, but stops you from reading the word of God and praying. Remember, God created all these angels with tremendous power before they become demons; because of pride.

The enemy knows that, if he stops us from worshiping God, deliverance, breakthroughs, healing and our salvation will not come to us. God created His people to walk with us day by day, until we sinned [read Genesis 3:8]; yet by HIS grace in Christ Jesus, we can still walk with HIM if we stay away from sin in spirit and truth because HE is Holy [read Leviticus 20:26, Romans 12:1]. Pharaoh has been negotiating over and over again; yet there was no point Moses agreed; but said, “You need to let us have sacrifices and entirely burned offerings to present to the LORD our God. So our livestock must go with us. Not one animal can be left behind . We’ll need some of them for worshipping the LORD our God. We won’t know which to use to worship the LORD until we get there.” [Exodus 10:25‭-‬26 CEB].

Moses did not negotiate with Pharaoh, so MUST we NOT with satan. Sadly many believers have negotiated with the devil often times unknown to them this day, when it comes to worshiping our Lord God Almighty, YHWH. Perhaps you use to hear from God, pray for the sick and they get healed, cast out demons and get regular revelations about your life and that of others, but not anymore and now spiritually blind! Why?

Has our problems distracted us to read our Bible daily and pray like we use to associated with sacrifices? Or perhaps someone said something that made us angry, so we’ve stopped going to that ‘living church’ or joining that prayer meetings? We have stopped having God fearing friends around because we don’t want to hear the truth but rather associate ourselves with unbelievers – those of this world with sinful fleshly desires;- people involved in ‘get money quick schemes’, smoking, drinking, using drugs or involved in sexual immorality? [just to name a few] Perhaps, we now hang out with people who gossip and talk too much*, and we don’t know when to keep our mouth shut [Proverbs 18:21]. And we can lie through our teeth and continue to protect these lies day after day? Is this not exhausting?

Now, if we are not speaking to the spirit of light then we have made a deal to speak to darkness. ‘For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries in the Spirit’ [1 Corinthians 14:2]. Don’t position yourself to destroy your soul by going around different places or reading random books; to learn how to pray or speak in tongues [Matthew 12:32]. Apostle Paul, warns us that, ”If someone speaks in a tongue, let it be by two or at most three, and each in turn; and let one interpret. But if there is no interpreter, let him keep silent in the community but speak to himself and to God ”[1 Corinthians 14:27-28 TLV ]. If we cannot interpret what we’ve been saying and call it ”speaking in tongues”; we should REPENT because is blasphemy and, is dangerous for our souls. If we truly speak Heavenly language our lives will not be as miserable as it is now?? We should rather allow the Holy Spirit [Ruach Ha-Kodesh] that lives in us to guide us to pray [1 Corinthians 3:16]. The devil also speaks in tongues and is ‘destructive’.

Or perhaps we’ve allowed that pain of the past, grudges and unforgiveness* in our heart to stop us from connecting with God in true worship? Maybe because of familiarity* when the closest people talk to us and advice us with revelation from God, we don’t listen, probably because of pride* or spiritual pride* [read Exodus 10:7]; We used to fast and pray, now we don’t because of what that, closest person- friend or family, Pastor, Bishop or Evangelist said or done! We have lost our faith in God? Sorry to tell you that, you’re wrong! you’ve negotiated with the enemy and need to forgive quickly because unforgiveness* is negotiating with the devil [Mark 11:26].

Soldiers of Christ Jesus do not negotiate with the enemy! because we know only Faith* pleases our God and He rewards those that earnestly try to find HIM [Hebrews 11:6]. Retrace your walk with God this day with REPENTANCE* and SANTIFICATION*; take back everything the enemy has taking from you and cancel every contract negotiations with the enemy in Christ Jesus- Yahusha name.

It is well🙏🏾

Amen, Amen, Amen.
